Got this unit:
Knowing the Sterling can’t be configured for Lithium
I thought I had to toss it and buy another gadget for separating the two battery
However they mention an External Current
What is that, where do I connect it (where in the charging
chain) and what rating is appropriate?
with old 50 A alternator
Old battery charger
30 A, mounted in boat
, activated with shore power
Both these charging
sources to same input ports
Sterling output feeds leisure bank AGM
and lead-acid starting battery. Worked fine a couple of years and two Atlantic crossings.
Too lazy to change to much. Just fitting that current
delimiter sounds fine!
There is also a huge solar
panel on an arch, does most of the charging, hardly ever used shore power
while cruising. The MPPT regulator
can be reprogrammed for Lithium
so no problem.
